I love the effect medallion stamps can give and for Christmas cards they are perfect as they have an opulence and richness. In the past I have made Christmas bauble decorations attached to cards for my mum in law which she hung on her tree each year before they moved to Tenerife.
I used three colours , the two graphit markers I own, turquoise and bouganville along with prussian promarker which I'm never sure if its more blue or purple.I had embossed the medallions in gold razzle embossing powder and used liquid pearls to add highlights.
The sentiment I decided needed to be simple but still ornate and this stamp seemed to fit the bill. I embossed again with razzle gold glitter powder.
The card was finished by adding some gift wrap ribbon for the bauble to hang on.
